The object of Payday FreeCell solitaire is to move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen. Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. You will always earn a token for every card you place in the foundation stacks. You will also see some special bonus "scratcher" cards on the table. When you remove these cards from the table, you may receive special bonus tokens. When you sort all 52 cards into the correct foundation stacks in the correct order, you win the game; then you keep all your bonus tokens and receive a Jackpot Spin!

A letter goes along with each number to help you find the numbers on your card more quickly. All the shuffles and deals of the cards are completely random. Unlike First Class Solitaire, it is almost always possible to remove all the cards from the table in Payday Free Cell solitaire. It may not feel like it, and you may get stuck or run out of legal moves, but the absolutely unsolvable hands occur less than 0.01% of the time. Replaying the same hand in a different way may allow for completing the game. The more you play, the better you get. The better you get, the more free cell solitaire games you complete and the more tokens you win!

Using only the cards at the bottom of the columns, there are three ways that game play can be started:
  • Any Ace at the bottom of a column should be moved up to its foundation stack.
  • Any other card may be placed on an alternate color card that is one value higher than that card.
  • Any card at the bottom of a column may be moved up to a Free Cell.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Payday Free Cell solitaire player.

Avoid building stacks on low numbered cards because you will probably need them sooner than you think.

Move any Aces at or near the bottom of the columns first.

Try to place cards in the Free Cells that you can easily put back onto the playfield.

Once you place a card in the foundation stack, you can't put it back into play.

There are times when you must manually move cards to the foundation stacks.

You don't get bonus points for using less moves or finishing quickly. In other words, take your time.

To reveal a specific card on the Free Cell solitaire table, right click on it.

Try not to fill up the top four Free Cells right away as it leaves less room for moving cards around.

Don't worry about chasing the bonus cards. Focus on winning the game by moving the cards to the foundation stacks first, and the bonus cards will come naturally.

Bonus cards are divided into four parts. Click on any part to scratch it off and get the number of points (or tokens) shown. The four bonus cards are additions to the regular 52 cards in the deck and have no suit or face value, other than the number of tokens earned.

I'm going to wager a guess that the badge will be used for either a Super Edition badge or another Site-Wide Challenge. But those are just my humble guesses -- wish I knew for sure!

I liked all of the badges, but personally I thought the bathtub full of tiles just sounded... painful! :o

Payday FreeCell • Re: Vote now to Choose Which Badge will be made

I think Pogo is giving us the badge to show their appreciation for their members. I'm always happy to enjoy a free badge in whatever game it is given.

I would imagine that the badge will be given for whichever game is represented by the artwork that wins the vote.

I am guessing that Option 1- Man running up pyramid steps might possibly be for Phlink because the game screen for Phlink has pyramids.

I am guessing that Option 2- Man surfing on an ocean of tiles might be representative of Ride The Tide because the game has this as a feature.

I don't have a clear guess for Option 3 – Man relaxing in a bathtub of tiles but I am thinking perhaps it may be Mahjong Garden (or really any of the Mahjong Games) because to me the man in the tub reminds me of a Zen Warrior enjoying a ritual bath.

Hopefully it will be out tomorrow and the mystery will be solved.

It would be nice to know the reason for the badge. I don't know which one to vote for without knowing why Pogo is giving it to us.

Payday FreeCell • Game I won counted as a loss.

By sissyannr » April 18th, 2015, 11:03 pm

I was just playing Payday Free Cell and won 3 games and went to look at my stats. It said I played 3 games but lost the current game. The screen where it says to play again indicates that I won the game and that I removed 56 or 56 cards (52 regular cards and 4 scratch cards) but no jackpot spin and my stats said I lost the current game. I should have a winning streak of 2903. I did a screen print that shows the screen that indicates that I won along with my stats indicating that I have 1 loss currently. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Is there anything I can do to get this corrected? Thank you.

Part 2: I have contacted EA Help 4 times now and was just informed that they are unable to correct my statistics and that I have to post the issue to the forum to get it corrected. I attached a screen print to one of the ticket numbers showing that I had won the game and my statistics indicating that I had lost the current game. Since EA help doesn't seem to be able to help with this I hope that someone reading this might be able to provide some assistance. Thanks.

Part 3: After contacting "EA Help" I have come to the conclusion that they are not of much help. I'm sure they mean well. The following is an excerpt from our conversation on how to get my statistics corrected.
"I have shared this screenshot with specialist team. But we are not able to correct this. I am sharing a link with you to update your browser. Most of the time it will fix this issue."

Payday FreeCell • Out of time?

By moya9559 » April 15th, 2015, 4:16 am

I was working on the personal challenge Ace Marks the Spot and still had a few more to go, but it says I am out of time. Why would the time run out on this badge earlier than the other weekly and personal badges?

:lol: I have RARELY found the "Hint" to be helpful. Of course, I'm generally not looking for a Hint until I feel like ive exausted all possibilities, so of course it does it's useless thing of moving the same card back and forth. :roll: :lol:

I have been trying to work on the weekly badge in Payday Free Cel and I play for a while with no problem and then suddenly a white screen appears in the middle of the game and I have to restart the game. It has been happening to me all day today, sometimes I can't get through one game without this happening. Does anyone have this problem/does anyone have any advice on what this issue may be? Thank you.

Make sure you have your zoom settings set at 100% for all your games.
